Every barbecue place seems to have it Sneech. This place has several of them. I would highly recommend going in getting the whole hog with a couple friends but beware there is a Ton of food! It seems that the best thing in the house however is the pulled pork. I'm saying this is a Kansas City barbecue Society certified... More

Fabulous BBQ at BT's, was everything we had heard, we were there on a Sunday afternoon with the flea market in town so it was crowded and a wait for food, but worth every minute. The brisket was top notch!

We arrived at about 1 PM and there was only one person ahead of us ordering at the counter, but the only order taker was on the phone taking a pick-up order. This resulted in a... More

We planned to go to B.T.'s Smokehouse after reading so many great reviews about it online. Many of the reviews said that they had to wait in line for the food, so we planned to get to the restaurant shortly after it opened at noon time on Sunday. (The few parking spots they had did fill up quickly.) We didn't... More

I stopped here for lunch with my cousin while shopping around Sturbridge. Obviously, she had had a few meals here before because there would be no discussion of restaurant choices. You place your order at the counter for pick-up later. She ordered a half rack of ribs with collards, and I ordered the pulled pork with fries, collards, and cornbread.... More

My son and daughter-in-law had a barbecue yesterday as they celebrated a pre-baby party. We offered to pick up the food and were very impressed with the restaurant. The staff was very helpful as they packed up lots of chicken thighs, chicken wings, ribs, mac and cheese and more. The food was hot and freshly packed; it was also excellent!!!... More

The wife and I had heard about this restaurant and was fortunate to have been in the area to try it out. The pulled pork was amazing, the dry rubbed wings were great and the ribs were excellent! Never been so happy to take leftovers!
